Today I am announcing the General Availability of the new VDI Calculator v5.5. This new version introduces support for Nutanix node and cluster calculation, and muti-language UI support for English, Chinese and Spanish.
To use the Nutanix calculation select Nutanix in the Infrastructure Model drop-down menu and select the node type to be used. As of today the calculator supports NX-3050 and NX-3060. Next release will also support the NX-7000 series.
When Nutanix calculation is enabled all non-applicable fields in the calculator and disabled, making it simpler to configure the workload.
I would like to acknowledge the great work from Frank Fan (@frankfan7) and Javier Larea (@javichumellamo) for their contributions for the multi-language support.
- Java will request authorization to execute. This will be fixed for the next release.
- There is a known issue when loading a saved calculation with more than 1 desktop type. In this case you must first open the amount of Desktop Tabs you want to load from the saved file. You do that clicking on (+) and (-).
- Nutanix calculation is only supported for Horizon View deployments. For the next release I will add XenDesktop and Hyper-V support for Nutanix.
